    Lightbulb Suggestion to stop Spammers

    Isn't the constant Spam annoying?

    Why don't you enable one of the non Robot checks available with Vbulletin or authenticate each new member yourself?

    Best Jerry

    Thanks Jerrry! Yes, it is super annoying. Will give that a try and see how it goes.

    Not sure, but Google Translate makes sense I suppose. The trend seems to be copy a sentence from two posts and repost it all jumbled up. Most pointless, really.

    Your rubbish is a lot better than the spam! I've tried some different verification methods for new registered members, but the spambots find a way through after a few days. Jerry, have sent you a PM!

    Call that a compliment, Jake!

    You looked like you had a strong "Delete" finger!
